|Thomas Park- Our Skies Radio New [Treetrunk 307] - Thomas Park|
A decade ago, as Pantheist Audio, I speculated that musicians could use natural data to create music. Music, I felt, was all around us-- in plants, trees, animals, and elsewhere. Maybe God was speaking to us through nature. I realized that I was not the first person to think these things.In the original "Our Skies" radio, I attempted to use variable star data from the AAVSO network as seeds for fractal ambient pieces...

The "Solar Aberration" tracks emerged organically from a glitch in my new laptop's audio system. "Recital" includes audio of my niece Sophia playing "Judas Of The Maccabees" on her violin.

"When Mystified made his pluto120 drone available for people to use in their own compositions, I decided to create a long-form ambient piece using this drone as the basic element of the track. I added some winter night sounds I found on freesound.org and clarinet improvisations which I created on the Ensoniq TS-12 synthesizer. I felt that the clarinet was an instrument that could express the mood I was going for, something very cold and remote, two elements which define what, at one time, wa...
